A cyclist was hit by a car in Portslade last week, just at the spot where parents are campaigning to get a crossing put in.
The cyclist was treated for minor injuries.
Resident Rae Powers, who has two children at nearby St Peter’s Infant School, said the road was a dangerous one, and said parents were campaigning for a crossing there.
She said: “This is the exact location we have been campaigning for increased road safety measures. Placing a crossing further north on Church Road would not meet the need at this junction.
“This is the location that St Peter’s students use every day. This could have been a child.”
Parents have been told a crossing in Church Road is on the agenda for the 7 October Brighton and Hove City Council transport committee meeting.
Anyone who saw last week’s accident is asked to contact police on firstname.lastname@example.org quoting serial 477 of 23/9.
